The US Black Chambers of Commerce has done a lot to help black business entrepreneurs and business owners to be successful. This July (2018) they will host their annual USBC National Conference in Oxon Hill, Maryland. The conference isn’t free but will be a great place to learn, to network and to get your business — or even business idea — highlighted to many who care about your success. Much of the conference is focused on education and a big heap of inspiration from other black business leaders and success stories. Get more information by checking out the USBC website.

- +**Update November 2017** Need some more inspiration? Check out a recent article in blackenterprise.com. It tells the story of a woman who lost a job she loved. Instead of moping about it -- after a year of job searching -- she took the initiative and moved to Memphis, got involved  with a local organization for urban young professionals. She went further and interviewed black restaurants to come up with a way to promote them to the whole city. She ended up starting Black Restaurant Week -- and she made $80,000 (profits!) for the businesses involved in just one week. Not bad! So never give up, and remember sometimes you need to create the job!
